The South Sudan portfolio consists of 11 active projects funded from the Multi-Donor Trust Fund for South Sudan (MDTF-SS) and three projects funded from the South Sudan Transitional Trust Fund (SSTTF). The MDTF is supported by 15 donors, including the World Bank, who made commitments of US$543 million, of which US$505 million was disbursed, as of April 2012. The MDTF supports projects in education, health, agriculture, roads, water, PFM and other sectors. The SSTTF for US$75 million was set up as an advance from the IDA 16 allocation for South Sudan. The country became the latest member of the World Bank Group on April 18, 2012. The SSTTF grants support the development of the private sector, rural roads, and health. These three projects were recently approved by the Bank Board of Executive Directors and are expected to start implementation before July 2012.
